HiPP's new infant formula packaging

Aptar Food + Beverage’s expertise is behind HiPP’s new infant formula packaging. Aptar’s solution features best-in-class technology with value-added benefits required by today’s parents and caregivers, including enhanced convenience and superior functionality.

HiPP, the largest processor of organic-biological raw materials worldwide and one of the global infant food market leaders, utilized Aptar’s breakthrough thinking to redesign their infant formula packaging for specific Asian markets, including China and Hong Kong. Aptar leveraged its expertise and history of innovation to develop a customized version of their Neo closure, to maximize parents’ experience when selecting and using HiPP infant formula.

Enhanced consumer experience

This new closure solution includes a tamper-evidence band to assure parents that the package was not opened before purchase. The wide finger-recess, the lid diameter of 127mm, and an easily accessible scoop allow parents the convenience and safety of one-handed dispensing. The Neo closure features an audible “click” to reassure parents the package is fully closed after use while also reducing the risk of contamination.

Safety is the number one priority for any caregiver purchasing and preparing infant formula. Like all other Aptar infant nutrition closures, HiPP’s customized Neo closure is manufactured in a high-care area, free of contamination to ensure maximum product hygiene and safety.

Aptar superior products and technology

The flexband design offers a low-application force on the production line that is ideal for mechanical or manual application and helps center the closure onto the can, whether metal or composite. The flexband helps protect the formula from insects and other possible contaminants. Several independent laboratories validate Aptar’s best-in-class technologies. HiPP’s customized version of Neo allows for maximum stackability, helping save space in transport and commercial and home storage. In addition, this solution is slightly taller than the standard Neo version to accommodate a wider range of measuring scoop sizes.

Aptar Food + Beverage leverages its knowledge and history of innovation to transform ideas into solutions that improve everyday life for people everywhere.


The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
